PS The thing is just that this stuff is so subjective. Dick also once said that 5-06-1981 (DP#13) "just may be" the best show of the 80's; I don't agree with that one, either. I was at that show but I also saw several shows I still consider far superior - 9/06/80, 3/09/81, 9/17/82.

There's just no such thing as best, in this context.

Lewiston is a GREAT show, but outdoor shows have that sonic problem; Do you feel that Sugaree and Sugar compares to 9/2? No DEW- Lewsitons out of the running.

PS- I'm off today and looking for a fight!! lol

'81- easily 12/31

oh, no, no, no, no, no ... I was not proposing alternatives to your "best" just trying to point out how subjective it all is.

I have a healthy appreciation for 1972-74 - a little murky on earlier stuff, I don't know the psychedelic years as well as I might - but my hands-down favorite and most-listened to show is 03-09-1981, mainly because, yup, I was there. So over here in this universe, it is in fact the greatest performance by anybody ever.

I do want to chime in on the "outdoor" issue--just to agree completely. I never enjoyed them in person (well at least not close relative to indoors, musically; other reasons for having a good time outside, of course), and almost always think the sound quality is off with recordings...
